healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies

Happy National Oatmeal Cookie Day! 
 

So I think I know what you're thinking... a healthy cookie?  Is there even such a thing?  The answer to that is yes of course!!!  These cookies are not only delicious but also so healthy for you, you could even eat them for breakfast!  There's a chance my kids thought I was insane when I suggested it! 

There is no oil, no flour, no eggs and no added sugar in these cookies!
